I really don't know for certain, but I personally would not use it based solely on the skin irritation cited in the MSDS sheet. I figure if it's likely to irritate human skin than anything leached into the water going over a fish's gills will almost definitely do harm. Like I said though, I really don't know so....

Bump!

I don't blame you a bit for not using it. That's the smart move IMO.

No problem... BUMP = Bring Up My Post.

It really should be BUYP, but that just looks silly.

You can buy aquarium sealant at a LFS. Maybe even online to get it cheaper. Home Depot or Lowes might carry it I am not for sure. For PVC I used Oatley... I think that is what its called and it says that it will irritate lots of things. Skin, respiratory, and eyes. It however is aquarium safe.

I looked it up. Amazon.com: Dap 00688 Dow Corning Silicone Rubber Aquarium Sealant 2.8-Ounce Clear: Home Improvement
This is aquarium safe. i would not use the kind you have just because they make a specific brand for aquariums.
